The School Board of District #150 was very excited about Grentia Lathan's prior work experiences when they brought her to Peoria. As a result, one would expect Lathan to share her knowledge of successful programs with the folks here in Peoria.
Lathan came to Peoria from the San Diego Unified District, where she was a top Administrator. A look at the San Diego Purchasing Department shows a highly professional purchasing and procurement program.

Unfortunately, Lathan's experience in this area has not been shared with her co-workers here in Peoria. Additionally, the purchasing practices that are being used here - would have been against the rules in San Diego.
It would appear that even if the School Board of District 150 doesn't know any better, their employee, the Superintendent of Schools, does.
